in washington. >> so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. right now we have low interest on the national debt, and a good time for us the to act to lower that deficit. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt, and that's 15%. that's a large percentage of the budget. it's lower now because of the lower interest rate. >> host: so on this debate, spending cuts versus tax increases, here's what the washington times writes in their editorial: as mr. thornton points out, the rel break from fiscal prudent happens inside 1970s between 1970 and 2007. spending jumped to an average of close to 21% of gdp while revenues rose to around 18% of gdp. >> host: social security, medicare and medicaid are the biggest culprits in the spending spike. these entitlements were responsible for about 5% of federal be spend anything 1950, a figure that jumped to almost 16% in 2010. >> host: that's the washington times edi
with smarter spending reductions to bring down the deficit. we can do it in a gradual way so that there is less of an impact. these deductions that certain folks can take advantage of, the average person cannot. not everyone has access to cayman island accounts, the average person does not have access to carry interest income, where they wind up paying a much lower rate on the billions that they earned. we want to make sure that the whole system is fair and transparent and that we are reducing our deficit in a way that does not hamper growth and reduce the kinds of strategies that we need in order to make sure that we are creating a strong middle-class. host: jim from south carolina, on the republican line, good morning. caller: how are you? host: well, thank you. caller: you keep mentioning and hearing people talking about pensions, but pensions are just invested the same way that 401k is. stocks and bonds. people with pensions lost money as well. i heard cases where people were not going to get as much money. if someone is manages their 401k, i do not know, it needs to be managed properly and
? the deficit. this year it will be below a trillion dollars, that's what the pundits focused on and ignored the grim reality. in fact, our debt is headed toward the worst levels in post war america. worst, the economy will show a masly 1.4% growth. unemployment rise to 8%, stay at very high levels for years, and 7 million people will lose their health care coverage under obamacare. that came within hours of president obama's call for more tax increases on the rich and put off spending cuts. tax and spend, it lives on and so does our massive debt. reality check, "varney & company" is about to begin.

instead of really dealing with the banks and dealing with the regional deficit overhang, he just created a circle of loop of help. so the government has been giving money to the regions, the banks to the regions and the government to the banks. but there's no real solution. the problems we main in spain. >> well, this is interesting. so, actually, michael brown was just talking about europe being somewhat of a closed economy. what you're talking about here in spain is this closed loop between the money that is getting in and borrowing. explain a little bit about this crazy looking chart here, flow chart, we should say, and this point that what happens in spain is staying in spain. >> this is a simplified chart of what has been going on. all the rectangular things are off balance. fade is the fund for utility financing. they're funded by the government. rajoy on the 31st of december increased the limit of these funds. frob and the bad bank are funding the banking system, the weak banks, including bankia. and the ffpp is a fund where banks have lent 30 billion to the region. on top of this
but isn't a lot of agreement to achieve $1.2 billion of deficit reduction over ten years. >> i believe they should at least pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would delay the economically damaging affects for a few more months until congress finds a way. >> there's no greater moral imperative than to reduce the mountain of debt that's facing us, our children and theirs. and our house republican majority stands ready for the president and his party to join us in actually tackling the big problems facing this country. >> you really get a sense of the different of opinion now is the time to deal with the deficit problem or whether deficit spending should continue. those cuts are already having an impact. a report last week showed the growth in the 4th quarter shrank because of uncertainty of what is going to happen with sequestration. that's the latest here. i'm melanie alnwick. >> thank you much. >>> in other news this morning, dc mayor vincent gray highlighted the city's successes during third annual state of district address. he mentioned a 3% drop in unemploy
, under the terms of some of those previous budget deals, congress must now find $58 billion in deficit reduction either by raising revenue or closing tax loopholes by march 1st. medicare would take a 2% reduction. the president prefers an option that raises more money by closing tax loop hoalsz. republicans want to stick with spending cuts saying they've already done the revenue part. a study estimated 448,000 jobs in d.c., maryland and virginia could be affected by automatic budget cuts. the sequestration cuts are unpopular with both parties and there are concerns about the economic impact. >> our economy right now is headed in the right direction and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of washington. >> the sooner we solve our spending problem, the sooner our jobs problem will go away as well. >> reporter: you may remember these cuts were originally scheduled to kick in on january 1st because congress could not agree on a broader package for deficit reduction back in 2011 and 2012 in exchange for republicans agreeing to raise the d
in his weekly address. financial issues like the deficit will be part of his state of the union address tuesday. the president is also expected to define his second term agenda and that is the hot topic on this week's fox news sunday. host chris wallace joins us with a preview. good morning, chris. >> hey, melanie. >> fill in the blank, the state of our union is. i wonder how your guests this morning will complete that sentence. >> well, it's funny, because it's kind of a reporters' game, you wonder what the president will say. i will say this, it may be that it's strong but needs to get stronger or something. they're never going to say it's weak, because that would be a bad reflection on them, unless they're just coming in to replace the other president. on the one hand he's got to deal with spending cuts. $85billionof automatic cuts that kick in at the end of the month. it's really only a couple of weeks away. he and the democrats want to see a mix of spending cuts, but also more tax increases. republicans saying no, we gave you the tax increase on the fiscal cliff. we want this to be
of where we stand and where we're going. the 2013 deficit standing at $845 billion. last year it was $1.1 trillion. so obviously we're going in the right direction. but they do give a grim fast if there is a type of austerity measure that is in place while the economy remains very fragile. >> well, that's right. there are two things we have to work on at the same time. the most important thing is to make sure that we continue to see an economic recovery, that we do what we can to accelerate that recovery, put more people back to work. and the sequester would undercut that effort, because if you take that much money out of the economy very rapidly in this across-the-board way, it will result in lost jobs, which is why we proposed this alternative. now over the longer term, there's no doubt we have to reduce our deficit, but we have to do it in a smart and balanced way as the president has said, and that's why we have proposed a combination of cuts and we've already done $1.5 trillion in cuts as part of the budget control act and other action. we did some revenue as part of the most recen
adding 10 to 15 billion dollars onto debt to keep running up these deficits year after year. something has to change. what's the answer? do we raise -- hold on. do we raise the price of stamps or renegotiate your contracts? >> first off, you talk about the billion that -- the money you just talked about, how much of that is the prepayment which he we are funding prepaid military benefits for all other agencies. we're the only government agency required to do that since 2006. >> all right. >> as mandated by. paea. so without that, how much of that loss would have been actual loss? >> well, i don't know, but i know for the last three or four years there have been multiple billion dollar losses that the postal service has thrown over to the treasury which myself and most of our viewers out here, we're funding the treasury but the postal service is throwing losses onto us. >> the postal service has not taken any taxpayer money. >> absolutely incorrect, ma'am. where is the money coming from? tell me where the money came from. >> the postal service has no record of taking taxpayers' money. w
